And a career that
Dr. Shalei Simms, Assistant Professor, Ramapo College of New Jersey, received her PhD in
Management from Rutgers University and became the 1,000th minority business professor in the U.S.
Since The PhD Project’s inception in 1994, this number has more than tripled from just 294.
You have a head for business and a passion for learning. And as much as you’ve
accomplished, you’re still searching for significance. If you are of African-American,
Hispanic American, or Native American descent, The PhD Project can guide you
towards your new future—mentoring a generation.
The PhD Project provides access to key information and resources about doctoral
studies in the business area, as well as a network comprised of current doctoral students, faculty and doctoral program directors…the very people who once walked in
Perhaps the single greatest support provided by The PhD Project can be found at
our annual conference in Chicago. Held every November, you’ll network with others
who are considering a career as a professor, current doctoral students, professors and
doctoral program directors. We invite you to share this “lifealtering” experience by
visiting our website, and imagining what it must feel like to devote your life, and your
career to changing the face of corporate America.
